2026 WCQ: Home-based Super Eagles Will Beat Lesotho  —Oliseh

Nigeria midfield legend, Sunday Oliseh, has posited that Super Eagles home-based players will beat Lesotho.

Oliseh stated this while reacting to Thursday’s disappointing 1-1 draw with Lesotho in Group C, matchday one of the FIFA 2026 World Cup qualifier in Uyo.

Lesotho took the lead through Motlomelo Mkwanazi in the 56th minute from a corner kick.

West Brom defender Semi Ajayi equalised for the Eagles after heading in a Moses Simon corner.

Reacting to the result Oliseh described it as a national embarrassment.

  • Definitely! Our Home-based will not only beat Lesotho but destroy them. 

    Well, good luck next time. 

  • There we go again. Nigeria had struggled in a match, now is the time for our ex to start coming out. Home based team that has won Many CHAN and WAFU tournaments for Nigeria in the past, they even beat Mexico 4-0 will suddenly do what the main team can not do.
    No be your fault.

      @ Oliseh is right as long as we put the hard work you mentioned about. Lolzz. Confusion rings bell all about the nigerian thing dem.

      • @Glory, you forgot to add prayers to it, you know hard work can’t work alone.. prayer warrior .

  • Sunday Oliseh, runaway soldier, talk is cheap! When you had the opportunity to coach both CHAN and Super Eagles what did you achieve?
    How dare you come here to open your mouth when you achieved little or nothing as coach of both teams. What did you do eventually? You ran away from your duty post. Runaway soldier!
    May the soul of Coach Stephen Keshi,rest in perfect peace.

    I ask loser Oliseh what did you achieve when you were administerating Super Eagles on your rein? SE in your rein have been the most worst team in Africa at that time, you have been making woes against SE player Vincent Enyeama till the team have resulted bad results; SE on your time have played worst football in thier time, don’t talk any more you loser.

    • @Hassan Tia,

      Oliseh beat Lesotho when he was SE coach sha oh Lolololololol

      When he was being frustrated by the NFF, hw wasn’t desperate like the other journeymen who coached the team. He left when the ovation was loud. Abi was he being paid the way your current journey men were being paid. So if your goalkeeper was being insubordinate, you expect him to rub his head. Abeg leave the man alone. He has every right to voice his opinion

    Oliseh don buy market am reading with keen interest

  • Me wonder why an adult shd not know when to talk and when to stay mute, oliseh of all individual saying this? That guy need to keep his mouth shut, like seriously dude I’ve been there before and did next to nothing plus you turn the entire team into something we dnt know during ur reign ,yet you have the gut to condemn the same team you ran away from.

  • See mafia talking. This was what he did to Keshi before getting the job and started fighting players and FA official until he finally run away when he saw the defeats starring at him. During Rohr he did the same thing and have started same again. Very arrogant jobless ex footballer.

    This man coached the SE with the full retinue of our foreign-based players and we played a draw with Swaziland (though it was an away game)……so what the heck is he saying…? What’s the difference between Swaziland and Lesotho….?

    Or which Home based SE is he talking about…? The one Togo thrashed 4-1….???

    We may still win the away leg of this game so Oliseh should shut up. He was SE coach and he didn’t do any better, he drew Swaziland away and laboured to a 2-0 on home soil with a funny 2nd half penalty or so (if my memory serves me right)

      Hahaha…. Hahaha. This your response go put fry pan and egg for Oliseh hand quick quick as if no be him make that comment oooooh. Na okpomu head Peseiro I blame for all these. These managers failings to connect with fans and rather choosing to listen to some criminals hanging around them to satisfy their selfish desires is always their undoing. From the list of players invited, it was easy to tell there has definitely being some outside influence. And these outside influences often times bring bad luck to a team if only to right the wrong.

    Better go take your dementia medication before you come here and dish us lies. There is no country that hasn’t tasted defeat before either big team or small. Wasn’t Brazil humiliated at the lost world cup. Didn’t almighty Argentina lose to Saudi Arabia at the world cup. So don’t come here and be making yourself look foolish
